TERMS AND CONDITIONS

 

Booking: A non-refundable and non-transferable deposit per person is required to reserve a tour space. The deposit is due immediately to ensure your space/reservation.

 

Payments: Your final payment is due on the date stated on your invoice. To secure your reservation, you must pay timely installments until that date. Failure to make a timely installment payment may result in forfeiture of your deposit and cancellation of your trip reservation.

 

PAYMENTS MADE TOWARDS THE BALANCE WILL BE REFUNDED BASED ON THE CANCELLATION SCHEDULE BELOW. PAYMENTS ARE NON-TRANSFERABLE. If traveling with a roommate, please be aware that you will be responsible for the additional cost for Single Occupancy in the event of cancellation and if another roommate cannot be found. JW Trips™ will not be responsible for finding another traveler as a roommate.

Cancellations, Refunds, and Trip Interruptions: Due to the nature of group travel and contracting with service providers, deposits made cannot be refunded or transferred. Unused hotel accommodations or any unused features or segments of the purchased tour are not refundable or exchangeable for other services. Travel insurance is not included in the tour price and will require a separate purchase.

Cancellation fees will be applied per person according to the following schedule and are based on the date you fill out the cancellation form using this link: www.jwtrips.com/cancellation2025 (phone, text, or email cancellations are not accepted).

**Note: Cancellation and transfer schedules for cruises, safaris, custom trips, and certain special events and/or private trips are often stricter and may differ from the schedule above.  These exceptions are indicated in the cancellation policies for each of these trips. Airfare purchased on your behalf by JWTrips LLC is subject to the airline’s cancellation policies.

***Non-refundable deposits: If we make special arrangements for you that require payment of non-refundable deposits to suppliers, we may subtract any such deposit from any refund due to you.

No refunds will be provided for any unused tour portion once the tour begins, including if you leave a tour for any reason, miss the tour’s departure date, or must be removed from a tour. There are no exceptions to this cancellation and refund policy, including weather, civil strife, personal, family, medical emergencies, or any other circumstances beyond our control. For this reason, we highly recommend that you purchase trip cancellation and interruption insurance.

Cruise Cancellation Policy: (Non-Refundable Deposit) If you cancel your reservation after a specific date, you may be subject to cancellation charges. Please see the cancellation policy for the cruise chosen.

Land Only: If a Land Only package is selected, the traveler will be responsible for arranging the hotel and the airport transportation, except for the group Bethel trip packages.

Flights: JW Trips™ is not responsible for any portion of the trip that is missed due to flight delay or cancellation and/or transfer delay or cancellation. The tour will commence at the scheduled time and date, and the traveler is responsible for catching up with the group in case of a delay.

If you do not book a flight with JW Trips Travel Agency Services, you must book your return flight to depart after 1:00 p.m. local time. If your return flight departs before 1:00 p.m. local time, you are responsible for your own transportation arrangements and expenses to the airport.

Payment by check: The customer will be responsible for bank service fees charged on return checks. 

TRAVEL INSURANCE WAIVER: 

International Trips: Travel Insurance is required for every person traveling on International Groups; proof of coverage will be necessary to travel. Proof of coverage must be provided when the trip is paid in full. 

U.S.A. Domestic: Travel protection is strongly recommended. Airlines, cruise lines, and resorts charge fees for trips canceled for reasons beyond your control (weather, aircraft issues, loss of employment, health, or family issues, etc.) will not be reimbursed. If you choose to decline insurance, JW Trips LLC will not be responsible for penalties or fees should you cancel. Any portions of the tour missed due to a medical emergency are non-refundable. 

If I choose to decline Insurance coverage, I understand the risks of not purchasing travel protection. 

Tour arrangements and pricing: Accommodations will be provided in twin-bedded rooms if Double, Triple, or Quadruple occupancy with private baths. Single occupancy can be provided in a single bedded room. Meals are included only as specified on the itinerary. Please note that the sequence of days in the itinerary is subject to change at the discretion of JW Trips™. We cannot change or alter the itinerary to accommodate other requests, needs, or changes by individual travelers. 

Air Transportation: IATA™ carriers such as Delta, United, American Airlines and/or other major carriers may be used. Airfares are based on non-refundable fares, and schedules are subject to change without notice. It is the traveler's responsibility to arrive at the airport on time for the departure from EWR. JW Trips™ LLC is not responsible for flight delays for any reason, including weather, acts of god, terrorism, or airline delay. 

Responsibility: No delay or failure to take action under these Standard Terms and Conditions shall constitute any waiver by JW Trips™ of any provision of these terms and Conditions. 

Liability Waiver: Our bus charter company is fully insured in case of an accident. The charter companies set the terms and conditions. Your signature below acknowledges that JW Trips™ LLC operates as an intermediary and will not be held financially responsible for accidents or bus mechanical malfunctions, lost or stolen items, food allergies, or if, for an unforeseen occurrence, the trip is not possible (such as a natural disaster or things that are out of our control).
